Yongnuo 622-C and 550EX (MkI)
Apr 14, 2013

I've been using my 5DMkIII and 550EX (Not 550EX II) with Yongnuo 603C triggers, with everything on manual, and it works fine except I can't do HSS.  In fact the fastest shutter speed I can use is 1/160th with this setup, even if the flash is set for HSS.

I'm thinking of buying the YN 622-C, which I know will do ETTL with the EXII flashes.  I don't care about being able to use the on-camera controls for flash either way.  I'm mainly interested in having the 550EX set for HSS and being able to use shutter speeds of 1/200 and more with the 5Diii.  Would the YN 622-C's work for me using the 550EX off camera?

Yes, the YN-622C will work fine. The limitation is that Flash mode, Zoom and Manual levels must be set on-flash.

Sync mode, E-TTL with FEC and Ratio can be handled from your camera.

More info in The Other YN-622C User Guide, esp. pp 4-5.

Thanks for the info.  The alternate user's guide is wonderful!  I'm going to buy the 622's.
